Throughout winter my skin really suffered. Having dehydrated skin means my skin gets really affected from the cold weather, so with that and also eczema it can be a stressful combination. I’m going to be sharing my updated dehydrated skin routine very soon and how I coped with that, but now as we have blossomed into Spring, it’s started to recover and so I figured it was the perfect time to give it a boost and a treat.
Bee Good have launched their first ever spa treatment at the Hilton London Bankside hotel. At the Spa To You treatment rooms you can experience the Bee Good Signature Honey Facial, which is inspired by the hotels very own rooftop beehives. The facial uses Bee Good’s range of products which have therapeutic benefits of British honey, propolis and active plant oils to help restore radiance, balance and nourish the skin combined with expert massage techniques. Having dehydrated skin can result in dullness, I’ve also been tired and stressed out which can take its toll on the skin itself and the cold weather really has had an effect on the moisture of my skin. So this was exactly what I was looking for in a facial.
I had lunch with Danny in the hotel bar, which was really lovely, I highly recommend the club sandwich and then headed down stairs to the treatment rooms. The hotel has just three treatment rooms in a small grey corridor, I didn’t really see any overly fancy spa like surroundings, but that was fine with me, I was here for the facial and the facial only. As much as I like a spa experience, I really do like the in and out of a facial, I find it so much easier and less time-consuming to go into the treatment room and be ready for the facial than have to get changed into a robe. But there’s a time and a place for everything and on this occasion it was the latter.
If you have never been for a facial before, you usually take off your top and leave your bra on, and just take your straps down. I did this and got onto the table where I was then covered with a towel.
The facial began with a cleanse, removing my make-up and cleansing the skin using the Honey & Propolis Cream Cleanser, this felt really soft and lovely on the skin and also toning with the Honey & Wild Mint Cleansing Water. This was then followed by an exfoliation and also extractions (spot removal) which I was asked if I would like or not. I always say yes as I love my skin to have a good clear out. It doesn’t hurt really, so don’t be afraid and just go for it, your skin will thank you later. My facialist also used a steamer throughout this process which was lovely and warm on the skin. I do love a facial with a steamer as I have always found it has really great benefits for my skin afterwards.
A calming Bee Good NectaPerfecta enzyme mask was also applied, which is a dreamy honey mask which helps to lock in the moisture to my skin. During this I also had a hand and arm massage to help relax. After this a serum and moisturiser and eye cream was applied to finish. Throughout the facial various facial massage techniques were used which were very relaxing.
Afterwards I got changed and made my way to the waiting area where I had delicous ginger and honey infusion tea made from the hotels very own beehives.
So what were the results? Instant results were super soft to touch baby skin and the day after I genuinely saw a difference, my face felt and looked much more nourished and brighter. I would definitely recommend this facial for anyone looking for the same results.
Bee Good Signature Honey Facial is 60mins, priced at £120 and is available at the Hilton London Bankside.
